How does this sub folder exist in my DSM?

I inherited a task from another designer (who is no longer at the company) to organize my companies DSM taxonomy.  In looking into it it seems there are limited amounts of sub folders you can have ie. : Library > Subfolder1 > Sub folder 2 > Element in subfolder 2.  But, I have seen some sub folder 2's have another sub-level that I don't understand how it got there... it has a bolt/nut icon next to it, and I don't know if this is relevant, but all the folders are named by platform, ie. : iOS, Android, Desktop, Etc. (This may have been done manually by the previous designer though, IDK).  I should mention that at the 2nd sub-folder level there is no "+ Add Folder" button-link. I guess because the DSM limits the amount of hierarchy levels you use?  So I don't know how it was created.  I thought it might have been auto-created because the symbol had other nested symbols and that was the DSM's way of breaking them apart for importing into your file but that was not it.

Any help understanding how this folder was created and ended up there would be appreciated,  Thanks!

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for reaching out! As you've noticed, it's indeed not possible to go beyond 2 levels in the DSM folder hierarchy. Our Product team, however, is currently monitoring interest for this potential feature. Please let me know if you would like me to add your interest to this potential feature.

To learn more about folders in DSM I suggest checking out the Using Your Library article in our DSM Getting Started Guide.

Please let me know if you have any follow up questions.

Best,

Shaina

Hi Shaina,

 

I spoke to my boss and it turns out he is partnering with you on some features and he had the ability to create these but I do not.  I think my whole team has expressed interest in the possibility of having more levels to the DSM than just 2 for the sake of organization.

 

Thanks,

Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Thanks so much for following up. I'm glad to hear that you were able to get this cleared up with your boss.

Glad to hear that the rest of your team has expressed their interest for this feature request. It appears as if we're currently tracking a feature to provide another organizational level below the current folder structure as you've mentioned. If you would like to also add your feedback regarding this potential please feel free to fill out a ticket with Support here detailing the feature you are looking for.

Please let me know if there's anything else I can help you out with in the meantime. 

Have a wonderful day,

Shaina
